Justice League International's cancellation has been explained by DC Comics.

The firm's co-publisher Dan DiDio told Digital Spy that he felt the title's characters were being overused, and chose to "rest" them for the time being.

He said: "It was selling okay, but we had greater expectations for that line. There's a lot of those characters that I feel we've told a lot of stories with, so at this particular moment we'll give the title a rest, and maybe give some of those characters a rest."

When asked whether Justice League International will be replaced by another ongoing title when it draws to a close with issue #12, the executive strongly hinted that it will.

"My goal is always to make sure we feel new, and make sure that we have 52 titles. The goal for us right now is to constantly replenish and refresh the line so it always feels fresh and new," he added.

Justice League International #11 arrives in stores on August 1.
